Personal Branding Photography

You’ve had that moment of clarity when you realise your business is doing really well, and you’ve decided to take the plunge and invest in some bespoke brand photography.

Now’s the time you need to up your game when it comes to the visuals you use in your marketing. Creating these images is all about your brand, and they are unique to you. No more bland stock photos for you!

Personal branding is about knowing who you are and what you stand for and telling that to the world.

You might be a life coach using your own name as your brand, a virtual assistant with her own business or a blogger with growing influence online. Whatever your role, you’ll have spent time developing a colour scheme, picking out the perfect font and working on the right tone of voice for your brand. Now you need the right photographs to finish the picture.

I specialise in working with female entrepreneurs and business owners. Being a female photographer myself might have that extra element for you when working with a fellow female business owner.

I had a lovely time being photographed by Jemima. She really puts you at your ease. She listened to what I wanted and worked to create professional photos I am very happy to share. I definitely recommend her! Rachel Extance

The Package

Quite simply, My Personal Brand Photography is a package designed to bring your personal brand to life. And it’s great fun too!

Pre-shoot

We’ll begin before the big day with a face-to-face or online call all about you and your business. I’ll get to know you and your brand so that I can create you the perfect bespoke shoot.

From that chat, I’ll create a collaborative mood board of inspiration and ideas about locations, looks and colours to share with you. We’ll then meet for coffee (or whatever you prefer!) a week before the shoot to discuss and choose ideas and locations.

I’ll also arrange for one of my personal stylists to visit you before the shoot to help you edit your wardrobe and choose three outfits to wear in your photographs.

The day of the shoot

On the day of the photo shoot, we’ll spend half a day on location taking your photographs. You’ll be supported by me and members of my team who will help with your hair and make-up. You’ll have the three stunning outfits that you picked with the stylist and we’ll take photos in three different locations. I want you to feel comfortable and relaxed during your shoot so if you want to bring a friend along to support you too that’s fine! Some people find it helpful to have another opinion when it comes to outfit, makeup or hair, and it’s important you feel comfortable.

You can have your hair styled into two different looks and the make-up artist will stay throughout the shoot so they can make small adjustments along the way, like changes of lip colour.

Post-shoot

Once the shoot has been completed that same day we’ll go for a drink so we can take a good look at the images and choose up to 40 that you like best. I’ll then send you a link to your own secure personal gallery where you can download these images, in both web and print resolution. I’ll provide you with an unlimited license to use the images for as long as you want to.

After all this, we’ll have a final call to talk about your images, and so that you can let me know how you felt about your experience.

Jemima took lots of time beforehand to discuss my branding and style, and to understand what I wanted from the photos.  During the photoshoots, Jemima was a pleasure to work with.  She made me feel very relaxed in front of the camera and had lots of suggestions for pictures.  I received the photos very quickly and they are exactly what I was hoping for.  I would happily recommend Jemima.

Personal Branding Photography FAQ’s

 

Is everything included in the cost?

Yes! I’ll make sure that we have refreshments that suit you whenever we meet and during the shoot, and the price includes everything from planning and the shoot itself, plus editing, selection, digital delivery of the images.

How much time will the process take?

This depends on which package you choose. For example, if you chose the Lifestyle personal branding shoot I would ask you to commit at least half a day for the shoot, plus two to three hours for your wardrobe edit and another four hours to cover all our communications, planning and meetings. This process is best planned over a period of three weeks so we have the chance to get to know each other before the shoot, which means you’ll get the most out of it.

How do you choose the locations to shoot?

As part of our planning, we’ll discuss what you want from the images and pick the locations together. You might come to me with ideas of where you’d like to shoot and that’s great! If you don’t have ideas, or if, when we discuss locations, we need some more options, I know all sorts of hidden gems Cambridge has to offer as I’ve lived here for over 15 years.

I’m also able to scout locations outside of Cambridge with enough notice given.

Who provides your hair/makeup and personal styling?

I work with local Cambridge independent professionals and small businesses, including Cat Sawbridge personal stylist and Finn Jordan hair and makeup

How long do you keep the images after a shoot?
I keep the images backed up using cloud storage and hard drive backups, so if you ever mislay the images in the future you can ask me for another set of digital copies for free!
Are you insured?
Yes! I am have public liability and professional indemnity cover. If you’d like to see a copy of my insurance documents just ask.
How do you deliver the images?
Once your images are ready I use a private online gallery which I’ll send you the link too. You’ll be able to download all the images you love, in a range of resolutions suitable for online and print use, and they’ll instantly be ready for you to use.
Is there the option of a payment plan?
Yes. This is an investment for your brand so when you book you’ll pay a deposit to secure your booking. You then can pay the remainder of the balance over two consecutive months.
How do I know I can trust you to deliver what I want?
I’m a big believer in clear and uncomplicated communication and I pride myself on being positive and personable. In the unlikely situation that something did go wrong I’ll always admit my mistakes and try to come to a resolution with you. I have a wealth of testimonials from satisfied customers and I make a point to get to know you and your brand well before the shoot begins.
What If I need to reschedule?
If you need to reschedule please let me know 48 hours beforehand and the same goes for me if anything were to come up.
When will I get my photos?
Once I’ve received your final payment I’ll provide you with a link to your online gallery where you’ll be able to download the images you love.
Do I own the copyright of the images?
As I’m the creator of all the images I make I own the copyright to that image. As I know you want to use these images the best way is for me to provide you with an unlimited licence of use which is included in the cost of your shoot. If you have any questions or concerns about this please contact me.
Can I buy prints?
Yes. You’ll have the option to buy prints and download your images from your online gallery.
How many images will I get?

Depending on the package you choose it will range between, 10, 20 and 40, but if you fall in love with more you’ll be able to purchase the digital files at £50 per image. If you want to buy lots of extra images I will do a discount for five or more.

Do you have a question which hasn’t been answered here? Get in touch and I’ll be more than happy to answer it for you.
